Manslaughter in Utah
Manslaughter is a form of homicide a step down from murder. Generally, one commits manslaughter if he recklessly causes the death of another. Thus, one can commit manslaughter without having the intent to kill. One only need act recklessly. The most common example of manslaughter is generally that of death caused by the reckless driving of the defendant, which is different from automobile or vehicular homicide which is death resulting from a DUI.
A Conviction of Manslaughter is a Felony
Manslaughter is a felony, and if you are convicted of manslaughter you may go to prison for many years. If you are convicted of a vehicle related manslaughter you are also looking at the revocation of your driver’s license.
